Les descriptions spatiales "au fond, au sommet, dans le fond, à la base". Entre anaphore associative et anaphore à argument nul

Abstract : This paper is devoted to locative descriptive sequences of words and to a peculiar associative anaphora, viz. the associative anaphora preceded by a spatial preposition. We first emphasize the affinity we can observe between associative anaphors and some kinds of description. Second, we try to locate associative anaphors among spatial organizers (à droite, en bas, devant, au fond, au premier étage…). The study of the difference between meronyms and internal localization nouns, and the comparison between the anaphoric status of au fond, au sommet, au premier étage and that of le fond, le sommet, le premier étage reveal a continuum between null argument anaphora (elliptic anaphora) and associative anaphora. This anaphoric continuum includes various spatial organizers.
